If you walk the footsteps of a stranger you’ll learn things you never knew you never knew --- Colors Of The Wind (sung at a spring concert earlier today)
Exploring events outside your usual path gives you new experiences and helps you grow. It’s easy. It’s often close to free. Volunteer-run events are best. There’s a different energy and passion. The focus isn’t on taking your money, though presenters benefit from the publicity. All attendees have an opportunity to make new connections.
BookCamp Toronto is an example.
